Karen's Handcrafted Dolls

All of the following doll's in Karen's collection were hand made by Karen herself. Karen started making dolls over 20 years ago. They begin as greenware pieces that are cleaned and fired. Next their faces, arms and legs are carefully painted and fired several more times. Then their bodies are sewn, stuffed and put together. (Karen says this is the difficult part of the process.) Finally they are dressed and put on display. This entire process often takes several months to complete. Hope you enjoy the photos of these beautiful and lifelike dolls.
